Default Indian PCC

Hi,

I have lodged my online application for 175 on 29th May (for me and my husband).

Currently i am on work visa 457 and working in Australia. I got my AFP done and also the Indian PCC from Melbourne.

Similarly my Husband needs to obtain his PCC from India. He is currently living in Noida, as a result he went to the Ghaziabad Passport Office to ask for PCC. The senior officer there rejected to issue the PCC because 1) The Spouse Name is not included in the PCC (as passport was made before marriage) and 2. Because the address now he is living at is diff from the permanent office.

My husband said that he has the marriage certificate and all residential proofs for the current address, but the thickhead official is not ready to give the PCC instead he is asking to get the passport renewed to get PCC.

We finally made up our mind to get the passport renewed, but the normal application for passport renewal will take 3-4 months, if we go for tatkal then we are not able to get the appointment since last three weeks

Can anyone help please and suggest wat to do now

Why don't you try to reach out to some agents and get Thatkal done thru' them? I firmly started believing that in India short cut is always considered as the right approach and being sincere/ straight fwd are considered incorrect in govt offices sad but true.

i can only pity your case as i had to undergo different kind of attitude from Indian consulate authorities in the country i reside now

Kaash.. koi inko sabak sikhaye.... !!

Yeah true.....we have anlysed i think i have 4 options now.....willl exrcise the one that suits us more:

1. All problem began when my husband filled my name in the spouse name column.
This time we will try by leaving it blank no spouse name no problem

2. My husband has dependant 457 visa. I will call him to aus...apply for PCC in AUS and he will get it like i got mine

3. Apply for passport renewal by normal application

4. Apply for passport renewal in tatkaal

We already tried the agents also....no success

i hate these government officials...

Hope i can get the PCC

Actually, for PCC, proof of marriage certificate is needed for dependent spouse. For my wife, it was needed but for me it was not. I carried with me the copy the marriage certificate with me and the TCS personal (new Pune passport office) removed it and just took company letter (for address proof), bank statement (with bank stamp).....and copy of company id.

As my passport issued was not from pune, they did the police verification where I stayed (more than a year) and so it took around 3-4 weeks for PCC else you can get the PCC same day. One of the person who came with me for PCC (who had Pune passport), got the PCC same day........

Please check going to passport office and talk to another person...if that helps....

Ok, so i will be in the same situation. Here is what we have
1) My name appears as spouse on my wife's renewed passport (we got it in july).
2) My passport does not have my wife's name on it for obvious reasons that it was issued before marriage and there has been no need to renew it.

So in my case should i just go ahead and leave the spouse's name blank in the PCC application?
And should my wife fill in the same since she has my name endorsed on her passport?

Hi everybody!
I have query here. My name, as entered in my wife's passport is, Surname first followed by First Name. Also my wife's name as entered in my passport in one letter short, although it should not affect the overall pronunciation. Do such issues matter. From what appears in this Thread, it seems it does. Any comments please.

Cheers!

Sorry to hear abt ur problem... I know in India these things are really frustrating..
We had applied for passport renewal and got the same under Normal application in some 2 weeks time that too without the agent. I would suggest u to try this option too. Just be sure to carry the correct documents.

Moreover with government work LUCK is the key factor
